Create a clickable map - web operating system, Programming Languages

You are required to develop a content management system for the following scenario:
"A Travel Information (NTIK) system is to be designed to allow travellers to access to an electronic one-stop travel "independent traveller" services information system. The NTIK will aim to provide up to date information about all "Nordic" destinations, activities, carbon footprint, well known sights, tours (etc.) for independently minded travellers who have access to the WWW, primarily for "Nordic" countries i.e. Norway, (including Svalbard van Mayen), Sweden, Denmark, Finland and areas administered by the Sami ("Lapland. Users will need a clickable "map" style interface from which they will want to explore suitably tailored web-content so as to make the NTIK as user-friendly as possible."
Your client will provide further details as the system is iteratively developed (i.e. a set of more detailed requirements will be given each week during client briefing sessions). To meet user needs, an essential part of the system is that you provide a searchable data set about travel destinations. This may be achieved using a collection of locally indexed documents and/or by leveraging a search engine (such as Google). You are STRONGLY encouraged to leverage Web 2.0 tools and XML technologies as well as other technologies with which you are already familiar as part of this task.
You should develop the system using a good standard lab based PC but should ideally design the system so that it can be easily ported to mobile devices that travellers have with them. More details on this aspect will emerge from the client. However good "visualisation" is needed, using a strong unifying visual theme.
Below is a sub-set of requirements to give an initial overview of the system

  • CREATE A CLICKABLE MAP FRONT-END SHOWING  Nordic countries and major tourist attractions, cities etc (IMPORTANT)

5 countries  4 territories

  • sweden
  • norway
  • denmark
  • iceland
  • finland

  • Users to be able to hierarchically access (e.g. for the city of Tromso): restaurants, tours, hotels, activities, seasonally grouped (winter, spring, and summer), weather etc.

OK. Will do this for the major 4-6 cities.
2/3 attractions for each country or major cities like you said

  • Users to register and log in using passwords. Admin users to be defined.


  • Users to search local data or WWW datasets using frequently used search terms


  • Look and feel of the system needs to be uniform and coherent


  • Provision of calculators (e.g. carbon footprint, km distances) is needed

OK. Will do this for the major 4-6 cities

  • Integrate Web 2.0 features such as blogs, tag clouds

OK will do as per academic standard

  • Consideration of a "simulated" crowd source inputs is needed

OK will do as per academic standard

Please use Dreamweaver or any other web operating system that allows the software to be used in different platforms such as windows pc based, tablets, ipads, mobile phones
